only way i can see so far is to "cut and paste" the files to you media folder on the sanyo miniSD card. try that, than open your media player on the phone. Hope this helps!

yes don't use media player, it will change the format to a format not recognized by the phone, (wma) make sure files are either mp3 or aac, and also just a hint, you can also put videos on, but you must convert them to .mp4 or .3gp or .3g2 mp4 is good, then you can just download a psp or ipod converter and use it instead, and stick the files in the media file,organisation is good, just put folders within the media folder and they will show up on your phone.

Songs under the music folder are downloaded from telecom music store and are kov files, you can't play music from your computer on your phone out of the music folder, well actually you might be able to maybe the telecom music application bundled with the 9000 recognizes mp3 files along with it, i'll try it, but still putting the files in the media folder is better because you can organise your files into playlists say by using folders and also put videos on.

Yes, and the music you have been playing is off your computer? sycrhonised by windows media player? because for that to work the music application that telecom installs onto the phone which is a java app would have to recognize mp3 and i don't think it does. because the music folder is dedicated to the downloaded kov files from the music store, the media folder is what the phone reads out of of the mini sd which is the manually copied music or video.

Yes you can play and stor your mp3 files into the "music" folder on your miniSD card. It plays through your music player and obviously doesn't come up in your media player. The advantage is that you can have both downloaded and copied music playing from the same list.

Yes I did get the phonecall, but it only affects a small amount of them (500 or so). It's something to do with the caller tunes. Mine works fine as one of the first things I did was put a caller tune on it. I should've given it to them anyway as they were offering $100 free airtime credit to take it away. Although no phone for 2 weeks.

Sorry can't help you with the pxt as mine is working fine. Found out how to use bitpim though. I was told the same thing as you, but when I went into the telecom shop they said they were still waiting for the update software and that it wasn't due for another 3 or 4 days. And that particular shop was out of loan phones.
